Reports reaching Joy Sports indicates Spanish coach Juan Ignacio Martínez Jiménez will be named as the new coach of the Black Stars anytime soon ahead of Ghana's AFCON clash against Uganda next month.
The 50-year-old is said to have stolen the march of Michel Pont and Avram after excelling during an interview session two weeks last ago.
The Ghana FA is keen to end speculation about who will take over from Kwesi Appiah by announcing the Spanish as the new coach of the Black Stars as an executive committee member of the Ghana FA claims.
The Spanish popularly known as 'JIM' was appointed at La Liga side Levante UD on 9 June 2011, replacing Getafe CF-bound Luis Garcia. After two draws in the first two rounds, Martínez coached the team to seven consecutive wins; including a 1–0 home triumph against Real Madrid which led the league during several rounds
He exhibited promises to manage and has the experience of managing big stars and big egos, which could come in handy with respect to players like Sulley Muntari, Michael Essien and Kevin Prince Boateng and other egoistic characters yet to sprout in the near future.
